He does not offer much complaint; he goes his own way abidingly, but k .....

.... into that Good Night" is addressed to Thomas' father, giving him advice on how he should die. The poem is a villanelle, which is a type of French pastoral lyric.

.... he is too weak to honor their promises. Levertov is implying there should be harmony between man and nature and the nature of how mankind conducts itself can have long-range effects on the course of nature. For example, we now know how the destruction of the rain forest in South America is affecting the percentage of oxygen available around the globe.

.... his poem #79, Lesbius est pulcer. In that poem he accuses Lesbia of incestuous relations with her brother, Lesbius. The name Pulcer is a pun on the real name of Clodia’s brother, P. Clodius Pulcer. Pulcer was known not only for being a violent politician, but was also rumored to have had incestuous relations with one or more of his three sisters. All three sisters, including Clodia, were known to not have strong moral characters and acted out of the class they were born into. Although there is no real proof of Lesbia being a pseudonym for Clodia, critics h .....

.... buried under the accumulating emergencies of our lives, the fabricated wants and needs we have had urged on us, have accepted as our own. It's not a philosophical or psychological blueprint; it's an instrument for embodied experience. But we seek that experience, or recognize it when it is offered to us, because it reminds us in some way of our need. After that rearousal of desire, the task of acting on that truth, or making love, or meeting other needs, is ours. (Smith 590) Thus, Rich highlights poetry's ability to connect with what many people believe .....

The audience to which this poem was intended is very important because it can drastically change the meaning of the poem, and has therefore been debated among the critics.
